Hailing from Toshiba’s latest computer line-up - the Toshiba Qosmio DX730 is a desktop PC equipped with a 23-inch full high definition (1080p) touchscreen monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse, and an integrated Freeview tuner that lets owners tune into TV channels. The Toshiba Qosmio DX730 also features a Blu-ray drive for viewing the latest high-definition movie releases.
There’s plenty to love about the Toshiba Qosmio DX730. Its touchscreen displays full HD pictures at the highest resolution. Images look bright, clear and with, little, if any visible hint of blur or distortion. It’s great for gaming, watching the latest Blu-ray films and even watching television. If you’re going to invest in a high-end, it needs to do full HD. The Toshiba Qosmio DX730 fits the bill.
The ability to tune into TV channels from this desktop PC is a Godsend - freeing up the television in your household should somebody else wishes to hog your TV time. Paired with the ability to plug in a console via HDMI, the Toshiba Qosmio DX730 is a nice little multi-tasker.
The Blu-ray player plays movies in full HD. Some models will even record. Meanwhile Toshiba’s Resolution+ technology will upscale standard definition video into HD masterpieces. So there’s no need to clear out that old movie collection just yet. The result won’t always blow you away, but look closer and you’ll see a difference.
Lots of other extras we appreciate include a wireless keyboard and mouse and six USB ports, which you’ll find are more than enough to plug in as many accessories such as gaming controllers, USB sticks and the odd novelty fan.
In terms of features here there is little to complain about here. The Toshiba Qosmio DX730 is a well stocked bit of kit - the main drawback being that to get the very most from it, the highest specced model will set you back one quid under a grand. And for that price it is definitely worth shopping around for a desktop PC more suited to your needs, be it productivity or gaming.
The bottom line
The Toshiba Qosmio DX730 is a great bit of kit that comes with all the features one could want for gaming, enjoying the latest films and television shows. Throw in Windows 7 and you’ve got all you need for the home office. As desktop packages go, this is one of the most-well rounded.
